Today has been a travel day so we packed up our digs in Barcelona and came to Roma (Italy not QLD!)
The top things from Barcelona according to Channe:
2. La Sagrada Familia
3. Getting lost (AKA taking the scenic route) finding our apartment on the first day
4. Gothic tour especially the royal palace
5. finding out that La Rambla was at the bottom of the garden not miles away !!!!
BUT still no hair ties!!!!!
It would be shallow for Jenny to say the giant G&T's ... but just saying!
So a short flight to Roma though we went to airport early thinking it was an international flight ...... but no it wasn't ... so no new stamps in our passports - ripped off!!!! Might need to make our own stamps.
Got picked up by limousine - a Mercedes no less - organised via a friend of a friend. We were supposed to meet up with a guide this arvo but she had other plans. So we spent some time after a late late lunch unpacking, washing and getting settled in to our new digs. We have another apartment in a complex that has a main front door then you come inside to the various individual apartments. Ours is on the entry level so no stairs this time! We have 2 bedrooms, a dining room, kitchen and bathroom so it is roomy.
There are about 5 restaurants in the nearby area and some humungous heap of ruins called the Colosseum just over the road.
Had a great meal at the café 2 doors up - we will be back! Channe got given postcards from the waiter
Tomorrow we will be doing some tours of Rome with a guide recommended by a friend.
We are here for 4 nights so will have lots of time to explore and check out the neighbourhood
The hair tie quest continues ........
